Cardamom-scented Dover sole with orange and braised fennel

I don’t know if I can make this look any prettier. It’s a lot of monochrome visually, but the flavors were anything but one-note. I half-filled an olive-oiled baking dish with shaved fennel, layered on some milky-fleshed Dover sole filets … Continue reading

Fideos in saffron-pimentón broth with mussels and linguiça

Salade Niçoise on Belgian endive

Smoky maple-glazed salmon with potato-maitake hash and curry cream

The other day New Seasons had some divine Alaskan sockeye – supple, cadmium flesh – man, their seafood is so good lately. They have it all open to the air now, too, and you honestly can’t detect a single molecule … Continue reading
